  • 4 cups strawberries halved or quartered
  • ¼-1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk

Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar


Strawberry Shortcake

  • Mix the strawberries with the sugar in a medium bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed. This will help draw out the natural juices in the strawberries.
  • Using a hand mixer on high speed, beat the heavy whipping cream with sugar until you get stiff peaks. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, melted butter and buttermilk until a soft dough forms. Drop by the spoonful onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated 425 degree F oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Split shortcakes with a knife and place in shallow bowls. Fill with strawberries and whipped cream.
